So I got 14 laying hens Saturday BR, New Hampshires, and welsymers ( sp). They r all 1-2 yrs old. It was an 1.5 hour drive home and they just moulted or r finishing. Knowing this and with the move I didn't expect any eggs for atleast a week. Saturday between 2 pm and 5 pm o was suprised with 4 eggs. Sunday we had a hawk atack our younger birds so after about 11am we made all them go to thier coupes...by the end of the day we had 8 eggs. Yesterday they free ranged all day but Hung out pretty close to the coupe. I only got 1 egg. Did I just get my hopes up to soon? Could they have layed outside and we just r not finding them????
